The Red Sox placed David Price on the paternity leave list, recalling Marco Hernandez to take his place on the 25-man roster.
By Major League Baseball rules a player placed on the paternity leave list must miss the next game but no more than three games. Price is scheduled to start the fourth game of the Red Sox' series at Yankee Stadium, which is slated for Sunday night.
Hernandez has been playing very well for Triple-A Pawtucket since his recent demotion, going 18 for his last 35. In 27 games for the Red Sox he hit .339 with an .859 OPS, having last played in the majors on July 22.
